When the weather is clear, bright white running lights are great for illuminating the road ahead. As we all know, though, the weather isn’t always great. Yellow or amber running lights can make a big difference in both visibility and eye fatigue when riding in fog, rain or dust.
The latest products from Custom Dynamics feature yellow or amber lenses to help riders see, no matter what kind of weather conditions crop up. Why yellow or amber? Studies have shown that the wavelengths for yellow hit the eye’s retina at the sweet spot for processing. In simpler terms, it’s easy to see. Additionally, yellow light doesn’t reflect off water and dust particles in the air the way white light does, reducing glare. This not only helps a rider see better, but it can also reduce eye fatigue.
Yellow Lens LED Driving Lights
Custom Dynamics designed the High Power LED Driving Light for Dyna Softail and Sportster models. This auxiliary light bar is aluminum. It has six high-power LEDs, and customers can choose a yellow lens for the setup. An included mounting bracket connects the driving light to the triple tree, and Custom Dynamics offers a plug-and-play wire harness for power. All in all, it’s a great way to get better visibility without needing to make big mods.
For riders who want dedicated fog lights, the ProBEAM Fog Lights are available with a yellow lens for maximum efficiency in bad weather. The lens combines with Cree LEDs, which produce a superior beam pattern with a bright halo. The beam is adjustable, so it can be mounted vertically or horizontally and aimed for the best view of the road ahead.
Each fog light lens is 2.36 inches in diameter, and the beam fills in the dark area between the bike and the low-beam headlamp. There are two fitments for the fog lights, including a universal one and another for 2014 to current Harley Touring models.
Amber LED Forward Running Lights
Another option coming soon from Custom Dynamics for 2014 and newer Touring models are the Amber Run/Turn Lower Fairing Inserts. Custom Dynamics designed these inserts as a direct replacement for the Harley-Davidson lower fairing radiator grills or filler plates. Each side features 53 amber LEDs. In addition to the amber running light, the inserts also act as full-contrast amber turn signals. The unit simply snaps into place, and the open honeycomb grill allows air to keep flowing.
Custom Dynamics also offers the ProBEAM Front Halo Turn Signals with an amber lens. These bullet-style front turn signal bulbs replace the stock one to provide an extra punch of light. The brilliance comes from 24 white LEDs in a halo design, which are enhanced by the patented reflector. The white LEDs function as a running light. A cluster of 12 amber LEDs in the center act as the turn signal.
